Clooney Denies Selling Italian Villa To Beckhams

GEORGE CLOONEY has shot down reports he's set to sell his Lake Como villa in Laglio, Italy to soccer ace DAVID BECKHAM and his wife VICTORIA.
Beckham, who is currently in the country on loan to top soccer club AC Milan, was rumoured to be in negotiations to buy the luxury $41.6 million (£26 million) property from the Hollywood star.
The British sportsman is quoted in the Italian media as saying, "I have fallen in love with the beautiful countryside. It's peaceful, quiet and near Milan. It would be great for the family."
The reports were further fuelled by the city's mayor Roberto Pozzi, who was hopeful the Beckhams would move into the area with their three sons.
Pozzi said, "I know the Beckhams stayed at the villa last spring but I never saw them - if George does leave then I hope the Beckhams do buy the place as it will keep a touch of glamour in Laglio."
But Clooney has been quick to dismiss the claims, insisting they are "made up".
In a statement, he says, "To complete the news cycle: I am not buying an island and am not selling my house in Italy. The story was made up, then picked up and now denied."
